I recently spent a weekend helping about 80 people make collages at the Atlanta Art Festival. Also, I’m part of an online group led by the ArtBiz Coach called the Artist Conspiracy designed to help artists take their art career to the next level. Recently I signed up for another online class called Flying Lessons taught by Kelly Rae Roberts. I feel my participation in these two groups has put my mind into overdrive and I’m seeing possibilities in places I never noticed before.
I helped four college girls put together collages at the Atlanta Art Festival. As they were leaving they asked me if I ever hosted “collage parties”. I’d never thought about it, but a seed was sown that might not have sprouted at another time in my life. Later, several girls, ages 6-10, wanted to do a collage of a “fancy” dress. I drew a template in the shape of the dress below and helped them pick out paper to make their personal “fancy” dress.
Needless to say, the girls were thrilled!
What else can I do? I also had several boys ask for help on a collage of a dinosaur or car. The possibilities are endless.
Do you think this is a do-able idea? Do you think it is worth pursuing? Coolage Party is just a working title – any ideas?
